Always a good choice. Diverse Asian menu. One of our regular places.

Ping is a consistent favorite
Ping is a consistent favorite of ours before Signature Theater. The service and food were outstanding as usual on this visit.

A Nice Way to Start a Long Weekend
Our party of two arrived a few minutes late for our 8:30 p.m. Open Table reservation, but we were shown directly to our table in the window even though the dining room was surprisingly crowded for a Thursday evening. We went for a late dinner to kick off the three-day holiday weekend. We shared a Shirlington Roll (with added crunchies and fish eggs -- they will honor special requests at the sushi bar), as well as shared the Shiny Slippery Shrimp and the Crispy Hot Beef. All three are favorites of ours, and Ping did not disappoint. The bartender pours generously, and the service is always friendly. We are fans and always look forward to our next visit.

Sip wine, scarf sushi, leave happy
We did sushi and appetizers on a weekday evening. Dynamite and chai-chai rolls offered just enough flavor and texture without being too spicy. String bean salad was simple and fresh. Shrimp spring rolls were just so-so - the peanut sauce was the star of that appetizer. Overall the server was very attentive and polite. She brought us lots of extra dipping sauces to try! The drink list (wines, beers, cocktails) was extensive. Tip for wine-lovers: on Wine Wednesdays, they offer half-price bottles of wine! Will definitely return to take advantage of this deal.

This was my first time of what I hope will be many, and was delighted by just about everything. The menu was interesting, the dishes superb, and the service was especially excellent. One thing I especially liked was ability to order a side dish of a vegetable to go with my meat-heavy entree.
I wished I could have sat at right angles to my date rather than across a wide-ish table. If I'm remembering correctly, most if not all indoor seating was face-on, which is unfortunate. The cocktail I ordered--I think it's name was a variation of appletini and involved Bombay Sapphire gin--was lacklustre, disappointing. And these are the only things I can think of to complain about.

Perfect for lunch
Met an old friend for lunch. The $8 Bento box lunch was a perfect choice, very reasonably priced with a lot of selections and generous portions for lunch. The $3.99 pots of tea seemed a little much in comparison. We enjoyed our meal and were able to catch up without feeling rushed.

Sophisticated Palates&Young Ears
The food and service were excellent. The noise level on Friday eve from 6 to 7:30 was blastophonic. Diners
could not converse even directly opposite each other at the quietest table in the restaurant, graciously offered to us by the courteous manager.

Good Pre-Theatre Dinner
Though the restaurant was busy, we were on time for our reservation and seated quickly. Our order was taken soon after we decided and the food was served in a reasonable amount of time and the food was fresh and flavorful. We had plenty of time for a leisurely walk to the theatre.

One of our favorites!
The sushi is out of this world!! The Chiangs make you feel like family. It's a must to add to your list to frequent!

Good Chinese food
Chinese food seems to have become so commonplace that people forget about it, and the restaurants that are left seem downscale and downtrodden. But tasty, reasonably healthy Chinese food is still well worth having, and Ping serves good food in a nice atmosphere. Much better than your run-of-the-mill place.

Great food and service
Wonderful wait staff--very attentive and speedy when you need them to be. It's a fusion place, so you get the unique styles of Japanese and Chinese (as well as others) in your meal!

Great sushi for Friday date night!
We had date night at Ping the other night, and it was a perfect way to relax on a beautiful summer night. The sushi was delicious as always, and the Szechuan green beans are a personal favorite - I could eat two orders in one sitting. Service was attentive and we had no trouble getting a table. Definitely recommend.

Wonderful server; wonderful service
My new husband and I recently celebrated with friends at Ping and had a very positive experience. Our server (Jay) was extremely accommodating and patient with our group. The restaurant gave us complimentary cake and champagne; a welcome treat. Overall a great experience!

Excellent lunch spot
You can't beat the "15 minute expresslunch" bento box for a satisfying and attractive lunch. Four California rolls, edamame, a choice of hot entree, rice and salad for $8.00. Not crowded so you can linger to visit with your lunch guests without feeling guilty. My favorite lunch option in Shirlington!

Our favorite pre-Signature place
Everything is always excellent, but we enjoyed our server more than ever this night.

I'm a first-timer at Ping's and was very surprised! The cuisine was excellent - fresh and delicious! The servers were very helpful and friendly! I'd recommend this restaurant in a heartbeat and will be returning on a more regular basis!

Always a fantastic experience
Food, service and atmosphere is always great. Rob does a fantastic job managing. PING is always a request from our out of town guests.

Wonderful dinner for the four of us. We were seated near the bar so a bit noisy, but the food and service were great. And the menu gives you plenty to choose from. Good pre-theater choice.
